The birth of a big blocker… 190 cm tall Jeong Ho-young began to dominate the court
A large middle blocker that can succeed Yang Hyo-jin (Hyundai Construction) has appeared in women’s professional volleyball.
Jeong Ho-yeong (22, 190 cm), a 4-year blocker at KGC Ginseng Corporation, is the main character.
Jeong Ho-young, who made his professional debut in the 2019-2020 season, has not been able to stand out in the meantime, but he has grown noticeably this season and established himself as a key player in the team.
In fact, it was difficult to find any significant advantages for Chung Ho-young until last season, except for his tall height.
He was highly anticipated for his overwhelming physicality, but this was because he lacked speed and jumping power. His mobile attack ability and blocking skills are also remarkably inferior compared to other team’s flagship middle blockers.
However, Jung Ho-young has grown terribly this season.
In particular, his ability to break down the opponent’s defensive line has noticeably increased. He is running second overall (53.02%) behind Yang Hyo-jin in his fast break success rate this season.
Jeong Ho-young’s sharp speed attack became KGC Ginseng Corporation’s killer move. He changes his mood with powerful fast attacks in every match.
Koh Hee-jin, director of KGC Ginseng Corporation, said, “There are points that can be scored when playing fast.” I focused on training to match the timing with the setters,” he said.
Jung Ho-young grew rapidly like a sponge sucking up water. As he played games this season, his experience and confidence increased, and now he has become a leading player of KGC Ginseng Corporation.
He did the same in an away game against Heungkuk Life Insurance held at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on the 25th. 카지노
He led the team to a 3-1 victory by scoring 21 points, the most of any native player on the team that day. His 21 points is his all-time record for most goals scored in a single game.
Coach Hee-jin Koh said, “Chung Ho-young has a quirky side, but he is a smart and understanding player.”
After the match, Jeong Ho-young received the evaluation from coach Hee-jin Koh and laughed, saying, “I once ranked second in the school rankings while attending Gwangju Physical Education Middle School.” only,” he said.
He said, “Exercise can only be learned through repetition,” and promised, “I will make what I learned through repeated training my own.”
Jung Ho-young revealed that his mother’s support has also been of great help to his growth.
He said, “My mother criticizes more than praises, and she watches every game closely and leaves notes from her where she needs to improve.”
Jeong Ho-young’s mother is Lee Yun-jeong, a former player who played an active part in the women’s volleyball team Midopa.
